Om arkitektur (ur ett pågående samtal)
Arkus 2002/2011






In the amount of books on architecture lacking literature to put in the hands of the curious beginner - a book in a fine and accessible introduces the reader in the architecture world. This anthology in paperback, which Arkus gave first published in 2002, is one an attempt to fill that gap.

The book spans from urban planning to interior design, from conceptual discussion to fiction. The texts are arranged according to a freely associative logic, where one thing leads to another in a conversation across time and space. The book also includes a series of images chosen by the artist / photographer Mikael Olsson. They should be seen as separate entries in an ongoing conversation about architecture.

Editor Claes Caldenby/Fredrik Nilsson. Picture editor Mikael Olsson.
